Pangkalan Bun Tours
Tanjung Puting is one of the natural wonders of the world! You may not believe this after you have been there only two days or three days, but after the fourth or fifth day something happens. The area was originally declared as a game reserve in 1935 and a National Park in 1982. While the Park has a checkered history of weak protection, nonetheless, it remains substantially wild and natural. Tanjung Puting is covered by a complex mosaic of diverse lowland habitats. It contains 3, 040 km2 (or 1, 174 square miles) of low lying swampy terrain punctuated by blackwater rivers which flow into the Java Sea. The best known animals in Tanjung Puting are the orangutans, made famous through the long-term efforts of the Orangutan Research and Conservation Program (predecessor to OFI), based at the landmark Camp Leakey research station.
